PUK 5.1

The PUK 5.1
– developed for goldsmiths

 

The new PUK masters the welding of accessories, applying metal, fastening work, welding eyelets, sealing pores, generating seams, welding precious metals incl. silver as well as copper and bronze and all alloys suitable for welding, even material thicknesses of less than 0.2 mm.

 

 

 

 

The original PUK fine welding system

  • Superior welding characteristics
  • Consistently reproducible and high quality welding results on all materials suitable for welding
  • Simple and intuitive to operate
  • Precise positioning of the welding points

 

  • Very low, controllable development of heat
  • Welding of even the thinnest materials
  • Makes for easier and faster repairs and soldering
  • Precise welding under the welding microscope

 

  • Maintenance-free technology
  • Low procurement costs, extremely good price/performance ratio
  • Compact size – fits into every workshop
  • Very low costs of consumer materials
  • Low argon consumption

 

 

     

Compact and versatile TIG impulse welding device

that is very close to laser welding in terms of working method and range of applications. On workpieces with a thickness of 0.2 mm or greater, it is an effortless process to produce robust welds.


The PUK 5.1 precision welding equipment puts a whole host of possible applications for jewellery production at your fingertips. Structures made from sheet or wire elements can be just as easily done as tack welds and repairs to jewellery parts, restoring missing parts or filling of pores by applying welding wire - and many more options, the PUK 5.1 is able to produce anything from the smallest of repairs to volume production, and even the most extraordinary of new creations.

For daily use

 

 

 

PUK’s operating principle is as simple as it is ingenious

As soon as the tip of the electrode of the welding hand piece touches the workpiece, the welding process starts automatically. At the contact point, under an inert gas atmosphere, a melting process with a diameter of between 0.3 and 3.0 mm takes place (depending on material and setting).


In addition to many precious metal alloys such as gold, silver and platinum, many non-ferrous metals such as copper and tin alloys, many steels, titanium and aluminium alloys are suitable for welding. All alloys suitable for laser or TIG welding can also be welded with the PUK 5.1.

You will love the PUK!

 

Facts that speak for themselves:

  • Intuitive to operate
  • Thanks to intelligent pre-settings, only 2 operating steps are necessary. Select metal group and work situation > weld!

 

  • Precision handpiece for precision welds
  • Solid quality and the best materials such as stainless steel and Teflon are prerequisites for precision in manufacturing and reliability in application

               

                            

  • Handling the components: Sophisticated details simplify handling.

         

                              

  • Premium plug connections
  • Professional screw and plug connections provide long service life and permanent safety in daily use
  • Ergonomic work: Individually set work position and comfortable hand rests for fatigue-free work.
  • Special electrodes without poisonous components. With optimal ignition and welding properties
  • Practical and fast: Plug-in nozzles and nuts allow you to quickly change electrodes without tools.
  • Premium craftsmanship in every detail
  • Dust-proof housing without a ventilator and means it's quiet and long-lasting.

PUK makes welding simple

 

The operating concept of the PUK 5.1 combines the advantages of a modern touchscreen with the tried-and-true operation via a rotary controller. Thus the intuitive and safe setting of the device is guaranteed at all times.

Correctly set the device in two steps:

 

  • 1. Select metal group

 

 

 

 

 

  • 2. Select welding situation
    > weld!

 

 

  • Power and welding time can be adjusted "blindly" according to individual need.
  • You can continue to concentrate on the workpiece.

 

 

Recommended setting range:

 

  • A blue bar indicates the setting range recommended by our goldsmiths.

  

 The "red" range:

 

  • The red lines on the display warn you that you are outside of the sensible time or power range for the metal and welding situation selected.

The NEWS of the PUK 5.1

 

– the further development of a proven technology...

 

The patent-pending system for welding process monitoring
 · New software for contact monitoring of the hand piece
 · Prevention of welding errors through interruption of weld if excessive pressure is applied to the electrode
 · Increase in service life of electrode tip
 · Prevention of tungsten inclusions on sensitive surfaces or on workpieces and materials that still require further processing
 · Improvement in the overall weld quality through more uniform processing
 · Error prevention in the handling: Increase in process reliability and more consistent quality for larger quantities
 · Learning function: More rapid and simpler learning of correct welding procedure, especially for beginners

Faster progress to better results – "blind operation" with single-handed operation. Concentration remains focused on the workpiece.

 

Even higher-performance LED lighting in our new premium welding microscopes. More uniform illumination of the working area - more flexible use of the microscope. These microscopes can also be used as fully equipped workplace microscopes - not just for welding.

 

Setting of parameters for "Power", "Time" and menu navigation with one single rotary controller.

 

Individual device set-up using the settings menu, e.g. preselection of welding cycle, calling operating levels up on screen and hiding them again, e.g. program memory, expert level, tack welding ...

 

Extremely simple touchscreen operation. Now with slide function!

 

Preselection of two different welding cycles

 

NEW: MICRO-WELDING

The application range of the PUK 5.1 is further expanded with material thickness down to less than 0.2 mm allowing the welding of wires and sheets with even greater control.

 

NEW: SMOOTHING

Shorter repetition rates and serial pulses enable a continuous workflow. With this setting, the PUK offers the opportunity to shape the added material as desired and to significantly improve the welding characteristics of highly thermally conductive materials such as silver, copper and bronze.

 

NEW: EXPANDED SELECTION OF METALS
Optimised welding parameters for copper and bronze. The PUK takes over full control despite the high thermal conductivity. 

Helpful information by touch

 

Informative help windows support the intuitive operation

      

 

  • If you touch a button on the display for a longer period of time (approximately 2 seconds), a help window pops up in which the basic functions of the button are explained.

 

  • Then touch the help window briefly to switch back to the operating menu.

Tack welding function

 

For temporarily fixing metal parts

 

  • Using this process, two metal parts are bonded together at their contact point using resistance welding.

 

  • The parts can be "stuck" together so that they can then be finally attached using PUK welding or so that they can then be soldered.

 

 

  • The tack welding function is particularly well suited to processing metals with low electrical conductance. For example, steels, titanium, etc.

Ease-of-use features for individual demands

 

  • Optimised "settings" menu
  • Simplified menu navigation with one single rotary controller
  • (De-)activation of the expert menu with 15 different welding curves
  • (De-)activation of the program memory with 20 custom programs
  • (De-)activation of the tack welding function
  • (De-)activation of the micro menu
  • The selection of basic functions such as lighting, welding sequence, choice of language or acoustic welding signal.
  • Opening the gas valve for adjustiing the gas flow to the correct amount required

Automatic operation or foot switch

 

Using the foot switch can make work safer and easier when working on difficult workpiece constructions.

  • Activate the foot switch by pressing it down for 3 seconds. The automatic function of the PUK is then deactivated.
  • The white symbol top right on the display signals that foot switch operation is activated.

 

  • Welding is then only triggered when you press the foot switch.

After my vocational training I have learned one more enriching technique besides the typical craftmanship – using a PUK welder.
It makes my daily work much easier and I really enjoy working with it every time because it offers completely new opportunities, e.g. when working close to sensitive stones. The machine provides a special default for building up worn settings or for reattaching a broken ear stud without having to solder. Furthermore, I can facilely close pores and/or apply welding wire. The PUK's operation is very simple and it enables me to easily work on jewellery in a lot of different manners.

Our PUK welder has become an integral part of our workshop, there is no repair challenge that we cannot face with confidence.

 

The PUK welder allows for small scale precision work, focussing heat in specific areas, allowing to weld close to gemstones and pearls. The concentrated generation of heat enables us to hold the pieces by hand whilst welding, thus there is no need for binding wire or the complex positioning of the pieces whilst soldering. We are able to work accurately and efficiently, avoiding time-consuming manufacturing and repair processes. We even use the PUK welder for our pre-positioning of claws before soldering on complex pieces occasionally.

 

The small scale and snazzy appearance of the welder blends into our workshop with ease.

 

It is however, worth mentioning that using the PUK welder is a skill that has to be learnt, you have to spend time becoming accustomed to using the machine, in order to use it to its maximum capacity.

 

Practice makes perfect.

I have purchased a PUK five years ago to expand my TIG welding to micro level, and never regret for that. Reliability, super easy to start, fast learning curve and lots of hidden capabilities for custom pulse programming - that's exactly what I was looking for. Besides, I would add reasonable argon consumption and ability for micro spot-welding. Maintenance is minimal: just re-fill the argon bottle and have your tungsten clean and sharp.  

 

For readers in North America: Robert from Lampert Tools USA in Chicago provides unbelievable help with order, shipment and delivery, and after I got my machine he gave me free one-day course for micro welding basics. Further customer support and getting consumables is fast, friendly and professional. I consider this micro welding machine to be one of my best tool investments.

I can hardly imagine a work process without the PUK anymore.

There’s really not one day going by in the workshop without the PUK. How quickly this device has made itself indispensable was astonishing - I can hardly imagine a work process without it anymore.

 

Jointing my kinetic works made of stainless steel has particularly become child’s play with the PUK and opened completely new ways of fabrication. No matter if it’s tiniest mechanical elements, sheet metal constructions with a thickness of only 0.3 millimeters or big room sized works, I apply the PUK everywhere and it gets the job done reliably and with a high standard. 

 

The PUK - a tool that I’ve grown fond of and that I want to warmly recommend to all colleagues.
